When I first started doing these, I was cranking them out as quick as four days to just over a week. Now I generally give them three to five weeks. It helps to sit with them for a while too to make adjustments. This 9/11/82 was a tougher matrix and was closer to five weeks (not all '82s are this difficult, but I think the extra reel to reel step adds more variability, among other things). Cleaning the clicks took a while, since I'd discover new more subtle ones. My general pace is to sync 5 to 15 minutes of the show per day, depending on the difficulty, or about one standard length song a day. I do shorter work sessions now so as not to exhaust my brain and start making mistakes/shortcuts. Often times I refine the mix and fix other issues after reviewing a bunch of times. The review period can last a week or two.

Well I really appreciate them. They are my favorite way to stream, especially shows from this era. Not many of these were part of my collection in the my trading days in the late 80's. I think the Baltimore "raven space" was the only '82 in my collection then, so it is good to listen to a show from a year the way I remember hearing them "live". By that I mean a nice mix of the crowd and then a focus on just the instruments, giving you sense a sort of being there, somewhere in the crowd. They really bring me back to a more simpler time, when the music is all that we really lived for. We have come a long way in our listening to this band since then, and you play a part in keeping that tradition alive. And for that I thank you kind sir. Peace
